Sports desk The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has invited new applications for the coaching staff of Team India. The last date for submission of application is July 30. The board is looking for new coaching staff in place of bowling coach Bharat Arun, batting coach Sanjay Bangar and fielding coach R Sridhar. However, it is now believed that Bharat Arun and R. Sridhar can succeed in saving their place, but Bangar's vacation is being considered for a decade.
Committee headed by Kapil Dev will take a decision on the main coach
The tenure of these three has been extended with the head coach Ravi Shastri. Actually, the term of the Indian coaching staff had ended after the World Cup, but keeping the West Indies tour in mind, the contract was extended for 45 days. The present coaching staff do not need to apply. They will be interviewed directly.
The Cricket Advisory Committee headed by World Cup winner Captain Kapil Dev will take a decision about the chief coach. The selectors have been asked to interview for the assistant staff. According to sources, Bharat Arun's tenure can be extended in view of Team India's excellent bowling in all three formats of the game.
According to a BCCI official, "Arun has done a better job since the last 18 to 20 months. The best for the current bowling attack test. Mohammad Shami is in form and Jaspreet Bumrah is performing well, which is credited to Arun. It will be difficult for the selectors to give preference to someone else in their place.
Not so with Bangar. He has been with the team for four years, but could not make a strong middle order. The official said, "Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma were playing well even before their arrival. Bangar does not contribute to the success of both of them. His work was to build a strong middle class before the World Cup, but he failed. '
After the last World Cup, the Indian team tried to fit Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, Shreyas Iyer, Vijay Shankar on the fourth and fifth positions in fourth and fourth positions. None of the batsmen could stay in the team for a long time. In this World Cup, four batsmen played in fourth place but could not make a single half-century.

According to the reports, it was Bangar's decision to send Mahendra Singh Dhoni to number 7 in the World Cup semi-final. Its former cricketers also criticized. He was run out after making 50 runs. The Indian team was out of the tournament losing this match.
South Africa's Jonty Rhodes has also applied for fielding coach. In such a situation, R. Sridhar can be a tough match, but Bharat can remain in Arun's place. The BCCI's official said, "Rhodes is a big name. Their application can not be dismissed. '
